Posted on 11/06/2012 3:18:47 AM PST by RKBA Democrat
The polls are open on the east coast!!
From this morning's election day prayer thread:
"Heavenly Father may you forgive this nation and its people for the many awful sins that we have commited against you. We do not deserve the wonderful ways we have been blessed and please forgive us for our indifference,neglect and complacency towards you. May you forgive us who are members of your Church who have neglected our calling and commitment to you to be effective witnesses and stewards of the many blessings you have generously bestowed upon us. Many of us have cried out to you for the past few years as never before and we humbly beseech you to bring an overwhelming, crushing defeat on the forces of darkness in our nation. First we pray that you quicken your Church by your spirit and lead us to unity to stand against the onslaught of darkness upon us. May you smash every crooked deed as evil men and women try to hold onto power and may this be so convincing that everyone knows that your hand is in this. Then we may bring the light of your Gospel to our people who do not know you and to the nations of the world.
May you block and undo every policy and piece of legislation they have passed that is harmful to this nation. May you make every policy they make fail and may you turn the hearts of the multitudes against them. May you thwart every evil deed they try to divide this nation with. May you bring their own mischief upon them ten fold. May you punish those in our government who are lawless traitors and enemies of the Constitution by exposing them and deliver them into our hands for justice. However we also pray that through this that you open their eyes to the truth and in your mercy that you bring these people to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ to serve as a witness to many. May you also use this to bring revival across our nation and a restoration of a culture that glorifies You. We also pray for those just leaders in our government who are struggling against the lawless. We pray for your protection and that you embolden them to do what is right to triumph in the election and in the arena of ideas. May you also continue to open the hearts and minds of the American people to the the truth and draw them towards yourself to be renewed in repentance and spiritual rebirth.
And this we humbly ask in Jesus name. AMEN!"
Just voted in small east central Iowa town . . .
voter #106 in my ward.
In and out in five minutes.
Adjacent ward voted in another room in same building - no line.
Not sure what this all means...???
Did more folks “pre-vote”.
Are Obama-ites just staying home?
Town went for O in ‘08.
Has been interesting to see the “lack” of Obama yard signs around town.
Many, many Romney signs.
WE NEED TO MAKE “O” GO AWAY FOREVER ! ! !
Send him to Saudi Arabia and he can be their on-site representative in Benghazi - - he knows the area all too well.
I’ll post a final result when totals are added up and reported.
I woke up at 2:30 this am because I could not sleep thinking about FOUR MORE years of “O”.
Now just have to be patient. (take a deep breath, self...)
I’ll predict 295 EVs for Mitt. That’s NC, FL, VA, CO, NH, OH, IA & WI.

Here's the correct code for FR's setup : <http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c116/candimann/IMG_3315.jpg>
You can alter it with a width= or height= tag if you like, as in http://i26.photobucket.com/albums/c116/candimann/IMG_3315.jpg width=300 or 200 or 10,000 or whatever, tho the latter will likely git ya flamed .. LOL
Specifying one dimension of the image will cause FR to reduce/enlarge the other dimension proportionally.
I cannot WAIT until tomorrow when I do not have to see Barry and bride’s mugs plastered on the side of the Yahoo Mail page.
Are you a moderator or can anyone edit someone else’s posts?
I “feel your pain”! Southern Minnesota here. UGH!
Oh, brother! I thought you edited it, but I see that you reposted for me. I need a nap. I didn’t eat to bed until after 2 last night, lol.
Just got in from voting in St. Louis. (I really should change my FR page to where I live now.) I’m not exactly sure what kind of neighborhood I’m in, because on the one hand, it seems to be a very religious neighborhood, but on the other hand, it went for Zero in a big way in ‘08.
Whatever the case, I waited all of 45 seconds at 11:30 AM, but I heard tell that the lines were 30-60 minutes long in the early morning.
No idea what that means, if anything. There haven’t been any political signs in the neighborhood either—well, maybe one or two on the hard left-wing houses, but that’s all.
Whatever the case, I’m overjoyed that I’ve done my part in throwing the bums out.
Here in California, we moved to a "top two" primary system where the top two candidates, regardless of party, move to the general election. My Congressional district was reapportioned into the new CA-15 (was CA-11), and Fremont's Fortney "Pete" Stark is now running in the Tri-Valley (about 25 miles north of Fremont).
I had to choose between radical senile Stark or Democrat newcomer Eric Swalwell from Dublin.
This reminds me of when Democrat newcomer Ellen Tauscher was running against Republican incumbant Bill Baker back when this district was the CA-10. A Tauscher-backed heckler goaded Baker into an argument at a rally in Danville, which was video-taped, and Tauscher unseated Baker. Tauscher went on to join Hillary Clinton's State Department.
Call me an Anybody But Stark voter this year.
LMAO .. there's a scary thought !
I can't edit your posts, but anyone can right click, get the url of a pic and resize it, or copy it, etc .. thusly :
To combat that, I try to make sure that my grafix suck bad enough that most aren't tempted to mess with 'em ;-)
At 11 a.m. today, representatives from the consortium of news organizations that sponsor the National Election Pool will enter a quarantine room, where theyll look at data gathered via exit polls, Michael Calderone reports.
Maybe thats your problem. You are supposed to sleep in the bed rather than eat it. :)
< bwahahahaha >
the ... img width=xxx.... command specifies a literal value, and makes the actual image size displayed very dependent on your monitor size.
By using ...img width=’xx%’... you make the picture a PERCENTAGE of the viewing size of the monitor, ergo it should display the same for everyone.
I feel both your pains! A good part of WA (especially eastern Washington) is Red; however, most of the population is in the very liberal (thanks to all CA immigrants - NOT!) Seattle proper. I’m hoping we’ll at least get a Pubbie Governnor for the 1st time in many years (especially since Gov Christine Fraudoir stole the election 8 years ago from Dino Rossi) - hopefully, Rod (currently our AG who joined in the Obamacare lawsuit against the wishes of ‘Queen Christine’) will win the Gov against Jay Inslee (was Dem Rep)
Bill, I am honored to be your friend and am so thankful for all of the hard work you’ve done to help Mitt get elected. I hope it pays off today.
And the market surged at 11 because they always find out first (even though you should never believe exit polls).
(prolly just added an extra digit by mistake, but that wouldn't have made for much of a story, ehh ? ;-)

Forget Intrade, the small stupid money. This spike up in the US stock markets right after the news groups took their peak represents huge, very smart money. A very good sign.
On a lighter note. The northern part of the state was supposed to be getting snow and ice.
So has anyone seen or heard anything that might be considered reaction to this information from any on air people?
Columbus, OH - voted this pm. I was the only voter in 5 precincts at site. 80%+ Dem part of town. About 20% of voters marked on my page as voted. Unless there was massive early voting, looking good here in Columbus.
Just voted in Scranton, PA at 1:00. Not many people. I was the 320th. It’s probably norm in my area. A van load of seniors pulled up as I was walking in. Retired man asked to have his ballot explained and then stated he was voting straight Republican. Maybe some hope there.
(What famous politician is associated with Alaska?)
Yes, read what I posted. The US stock markets spiked up sharply. That tells you they think Romney will win. If the data was positive for Zero, the markets would have sold off.
Your cliches are numerous, but do you take responsibility for your actions? If your actions result in the reelection of the radical socialist, will you accept responsibility or will you at least refrain from criticizing Obama. Of course, my comments can be ignored if the concept of personal responsibility is foreign to you.
which yields Cheers!
My gut says that Obama will not get the Young Vote like he did four years ago. When my husband and I went to vote at 10:30am... there was not one young voter in line (18-30). Yes, these youngins could still be sleeping and yes, this could be a fluke but not one young voter in a long line? It was much different four years ago when masses of young voters got out to vote.
I was specifically asking about reaction from on-air people, not the markets.
They are not allowed to speak about what they saw till 5:00 PM.
Was hoping for something more subtle, a change in demeanor, a tear here or there.
lol on that Alaskan bicycling jersey!
Voted PROUDLY for ROMNEY in the liberal state of CALIF....
MOST information at the polling place was in a foreign language!
NO LINES which was good news. In 2008 long lines. We are in a Obama district!
Early Vote in Volusa County, Florida Shifted 15 Points to the GOP From 2008 - Jim Geraghty.
Miami Dade County, #FL - Bellwether precinct in Coral Gables projecting 90% GOP turnout.
“I voted for my first Democrat today...”
Been there. Done that. I live in bluer than blue Minneapolis. When it comes to city council, school board and park board races, the choices are all Democrats or occasionally Green Party.
I’m stuck voting for the Democrat who’ll only make me sick 90% of the time as opposed to the one who’ll make me sick 100% of the time.
in some statewide primary elections, I’ve crossed over and voted in the Dem primary (similiar to Limbaugh’s “Operation Chaos” idea) to try and get the Democrat nominated who would be easiest for the Republican to beat in November.
Has anyone toilet overflowed?
“Miami Dade County, #FL - Bellwether precinct in Coral Gables projecting 90% GOP turnout.”
God bless the Miami Cubans, our saviors in 2000.
I was flipping to CSPAN as much as I could this weekend as I SO wanted to see Ryan - but didn’t seen any of his speeches.
I did see some of Gov Romney’s speeches - - the 1 in Bucks County, PA was terrific as was the turnout! Also saw the one in FL early (here) yesterday a.m.; and, saw the pictures from the NH speech last night, which looked like a Hugh and series turnout!! Waiting to hear/see the ones today (FNC had a shot on the tarmack with Biden’s plane right behind Romney’s).
I took a vacation day today and tomorrow. Thought my employer would appreciate it as I knew I wouldn’t be very productive, though I just did a con call and am responding to email here and there.
I agree that Minnesota, like WA, isn’t in play; however, we can decrease the 0 vote in the blue states and keep praying for a R/R win in the states that are in play.
God Bless America and God Bless Romney and Ryan and their families and supporters! Go R/R team - win one for the Gipper (and all of America!)!
Pinellas County, #FL - Another Obama needs to run up score, but so far GOP bellwether precincts already at 60% turnout. Dem ones at 20-40%.
Front St. polling site was steady, but not overwhelmed. I was #277 at 9:45 a.m.
I received many GOTV calls this week and last. And one today. Big change from four years ago.
THANK YOU I had no idea.
Thanks for the info.
Well at 11am EST means polls were just opening in other parts of the country. They’ll get a second wave of exit polling soon. Republicans always look bad in exit polling data so ignore any leaked exit polling data.
The face on the woman behind the counter, if looks could kill.
Anecdotal, but here it is: RECORD turnout in rural counties in OK. Have no idea if any states will mirror this, but in 10/2012 poll, Romney led by 22 with rural voters nationwide.
